07/06/19 – Think I’m Ready…

Launch time is tomorrow morning.  I’m not much for rushing around in the morning so it might be a late start.

This is what the Africa Twin looks like when it is ready for a long trip.

Loaded and Ready

I have camping equipment, but no cooking gear.  The Colonel is bringing the coffee pot and one burner stove.  Also, have Bear Spray, just in case.  According to the weather reports I am taking way too many cold/cool weather clothes; it was 90 degrees in Anchorage today.  Bet it cools off – hope it cools off.  Rob informed me that he and Matt have no intentions to camp – WIMPs – must be afraid of bears.

He is also planning to not leave Utah until Sunday, July 14th, and they’ll catch up with us somewhere in Alaska, or maybe on the way back.

So, I should be on the road in the morning, stopping for photo opportunities in Palestine, Canton, and Sulfur Springs.  These are all County Seats and you can see the courthouse pictures at Bud’s Texas Courthouse Tour .

I’ll let you know about my travel to Edmond.  I’m looking forward to seeing sister Patt and  her local family.

Later, Bud…

I consider myself an Adventure Motorcycle Traveler with over 50 years riding experience. Been to all four corners of North America, and always thinking about my next ride / adventure. I have a stable full of motorcycles and check the adds and forums regularly for another one; however, limited space keeps me in check, so I only have five right now. Just started a new adventure by buying a Sidecar rig. Man, (and ladies) this is totally different. So different I thought it needed a blog all to itself. Might have to change my handle from Lowrider Bud to Sidecar Bud. I'll let ya'll know how it goes. Later, Bud...
